This is likely the worst anchor I've ever seen.  The yellow "webbing" in the photo is actually a strap from the climber's SUV roof-rack.  It's hard to see in this photo, but 2 rubber-ized hooks on the two ends of the strap are hooked through the left-hand carabiner.<br>
<br>
The anchor is completely non-redundant and relies on the stitching that attaches the rubber-ized hooks to the ends of the strap.  And that quick-draw?<br>
<br>
At least they padded the edge to protect the strap from abrasion.
